Sleep Tight

César works as a Concierge in a small residential building in Barcelona. He is deeply unhappy and is looking for any reason for further existence. Day after day he does his job, and while none of the tenants did not pay him much attention, he constantly watches them. He knows every little thing in their lives, everything about them, especially about one of them.

A humble worker in the part of the opening and closing of doors, it not wind the occupants of the house on the burgers in free time does not puts in the hole Wallpaper torn teeth. Actually, he lives a dull boring life, brings the newspaper on the counter of the lobby, visiting her terminally ill mother, said reserved courtesy to women of different ages. This day. And at night climbs on the roof and thinks, not throw it, to edrene hair dryer, in the void. He suffering from anhedonia, lingering, even in the clinical absence of the feeling of happiness and only secretly owning the souls of the careless residents, manipulating them emotions, destroying them joy, he can compensate the shortage is simple, but not replicable momentum. In its tricks — ordinary municipal rudeness of the type to spit in the soup next door, household hazardous, peculiar to many people, but question how far he can go.

Catalan Director Jaume Balaguero, who directed a number of horror quite ordinary, created two very worthy film — it's partly an absurdist short film "Fear" and named rent a "deep sleep" picture "While you sleep." Name it borrowed TV in its with Placeu film "Report", by the way notorious. While peaceful, normal, "positive" people sweetly snoring in their beds, what Nightmares listen to their breath, lurk in the corridors, escalivada in abandoned houses on the outskirts? But the worst thing — not bloody half-naked woman, shagrithaya police do not the sect of the extractor of the quintessence of evil, not the maniac luring victims in to their dark lair, the worst, and then Balaguero learned a great lesson, "Tenant", Polanski, — everyday. Door handles, tubes of toothpaste, lockers creams and lotions, mattresses, pots, a cradle of your beloved child on the sun terrace. Terrible, overwhelming mind — it's a common, parasitic on your carelessness and suddenly, treacherously leaving the confines of the usual-anonymous. Of yourself overlook things, and more than Kantian transcendental horror is the horror of archaic, savage forces, not able to understand the word "cant" even in a lewd sense, cautiously look at his stick-the diggers, not moved whether it unfriendly spirit.

Of course, this opening with a dizzying horror, woven from dust, not completely belongs to Polanski. Anthony Perkins in"Psycho" Hitchcock played primarily ordinary, mouse-grey man. This was the historical prototype of all monsters — simple-minded ed not in its gentle solitude necrophiliac. A man almost merges with the interior of a respectable house, was acting Balaguero doorman Cesar, a modest employee at the part of the opening and closing of doors, in free time while you sleep...

 history of the man who does not found your own happiness. Any professional development or family nest, only corrodes the soul alone. Yeah, he wasn't happy, but in this world it held on his words, only the realization that around him were many of the same accidents. Therefore, the smile blossoming, beautiful young Mimi irritated him so that deleted the face of the girl became the main purpose. Admittedly, Cesar was very creative, easy violence he was little, I had to erase it beauty, to play on her phobias...

In General, we see a very good Thriller plot, characters who make hard and to track development. The psychology of a maniac we understood disclosed fairly well. We penetrate his world, hear his thoughts.

Of course, there were some errors.

In the end, Cesar achieved his goal. All he wanted what wanted, came true. Now he is pleased with himself and happy with his some special happiness, full of malice.

Strange, but not matter the immorality of the situation, the maniac is not cause disgust, only pity. I think the Director of this and sought, revealing to us its inner world.

Cesar wakes up in the morning next to a beautiful young girl goes on the roof, like half teetering on the edge of the ramp, take a shower goes to work. Far to go don't need for césar — the Concierge, he puts letters in mailboxes, on the little things helps residents and monitors order house. Lunch break Cesar spends at mother of the hospital. It in a measure pedantic, friendly, sometimes too thoughtful. In General, the first twenty minutes of the film paint him an angel, a reliable friend and a caring son.

Cesar is one problem — it is very concerned about the mental state of people around him. How can you live when all around smiling, happy, when all around — safely steadily? I remember a story of a typical rapist, they say, it was all so young and blooming and I go collect change for the bottle in it fault that I was raped and killed.

Have Cesar too much to blame, but Clara — its a red flag, its a personal challenge. Cesar goes to all, to poison her existence, not much this succeeds in mainly fault of third-party intervention in the face of police, who calculated the operational focus of the problems of doctors with good from Allergy Clara's boyfriend, so inappropriately returned to Barcelona.

Despite the obvious aversion which Cesar just not can not to call, monitor it's dirty tricks is very interesting. Voltage in the film is clearly defined, the actors almost do not replay (sometimes Clara still sickeningly cheerful), picture-in the film is very beautiful. However, the identity of Cesar — the luck of the screenwriter, the strongest side of the film. Starova futility begins to break with the first minutes of the movie, that he was disciplined by the chief, that it seriously does not perceive the residents, that's son of a cleaning woman disrespectful talking with him. The position of Cesar in society may was the main source of the problem, but its record the film is almost no words.

Of course, a good night's sleep — a pretty typical story of a typical crazy city, a kind of ballad about a lonely miserable maniac — the neurotic. On first glance it seems that home — this reinforced comfort zone of Cesar, after all, the house offers a solid ground for his crimes. However, towards the end you begin to realize that Cesar lost so much that he is no what quite a skimp on their position, job, future. Cesar never a there, because the fact it the monologue of the old woman before you leave, — his personal confession because it is absolutely the same lonely useless mechanism, does not justify your miserable existence. Only here sublimation Cesar is not overly reverent care for dogs, in revenge the world for the uselessness and futility. Can long to think about the fact was that Cesar did with Clara, the result of his obviously doomed love to the girl, but I prefer not to dig so deep to think of the Director. In General, the film — a true masterpiece, albeit not without shortcomings, but is worthy of the highest mark.
